Thinking Well has so many components to it. One of of them being the noise that surrounds us day in and day out.
Today is all about The Media Detox. When was the last time you didn’t watch any television and powered off your cell phone. Yesterday I did a media detox, its a way to unplug, hit the hard reset and I highly recommend it to you.
Instead of eating in front of the television, put your favorite music on and enjoy your meal. For myself, I jammed out to some of my favorite Christmas tunes and got really festive. Typically, if you choose music instead of television your creative awareness heightens and can lead to activities like reading, writing, drawing, meditation, exercise, or soaking up some sun.
Where do I start with the benefits of powering off your cell? You can experience all of the above activities and include peace of mind. Ask yourself, “How often do I enjoy activities or just silence without a ringer or notification going off?” It’s
either call, text, email, bbm, facebook update, tweet, etc.
If you are a media detox virgin and don’t feel comfortable with the idea then communicate with your loved ones first then shut everything down for just an hour and create an hour of power in your life today.
For those more experienced do a whole day, move your body, allow thoughts to enter your mind and act on them without clouding them or numbing the ideas with TV and Cell phone poison. So many people tell me they need to just get away. I say, “Do a media detox and go wherever you want to in your mind and spirit right now.”
Don’t wait another minute. Your soul will thank you.
